Jerry Brown Admitted He Lied to Become Governor (video)

Meg Whitman has some fun in a political ad with Jerry Brown's candid admission several years ago that he lied in order to be elected. It is unlikely he has changes in the intervening years.


Via NewsBusters:
Interviewer: ...What did you lie about when you were governor?

Jerry Brown: It’s all a lie. You’re pretending there’s a plan…

Interviewer: What did you lie about?

Jerry Brown: You run for office and the assumption is “Oh, I know what to do”. You don’t. I didn’t have a plan for California. Clinton doesn’t have a plan. Bush doesn’t have a plan.

Interviewer: You said you had a plan for California and you lied because you didn’t have a plan?

Jerry Brown: You say you’re going to lower taxes, you’re going to put people to work, you’re gonna improve the schools, you’re going to stop crime… crime is up, schools are worse, taxes are higher. I mean be real!
